Twitter has threatened to sue Meta, the parent company of Facebook, over the release of Instagram Threads, which it claims is a copycat of Twitter. Twitter lawyer Alex Spiro accused Meta of stealing its intellectual property and trade secrets, alleging that former Twitter employees were involved in creating the clone. The legal threat comes as Twitter faces challenges in retaining advertisers on its platform. Meta’s Threads app, described as a “Twitter killer,” gained over 30 million users within 24 hours of its launch, providing an alternative to Twitter. Twitter’s lawsuit seeks to prevent Meta from using its intellectual property and demands immediate action.
